Speaking of the design, my old Optima card from a few years ago wasn't this, but literally the old Amex Costco design. I guess they had a lot of leftover blanks they needed to get rid of.

Lol, yeah probably so. Pretty smart on thier end to save money. Looking forward to getting a better Amex product in the next year. I never seen the card you posted as the optima card tho. Even years ago when I was googling it the style I have now always popped up. 


I wish I had taken a picture! I was expecting the "standard" Optima card when it arrived in the mail, but nope. It was the Costco card, but pale blue all over instead of the green and blue motif, and it didn't have "Optima" anywhere on it. Even more strange, when I activated the card, it showed up in my online portal with the same Optima card design as yours.

 

Now I wish I hadn't shredded it after it had outlived its usefulness... Smiley Frustrated

Living that DINK life, baby.

Congrats, I had the original green optima from the 1980's .. what memories.


Yeah I heard people say it was one of the 1st Amex. You can kinda see that as the design looks a little dated, but it's still a nice card. 


@trog87, DatedSmiley Very Happy

 

This is what mine looked like ..

 


Wow!!! That's a interesting looking card. I like the minimal look of it. That start year is throwing Me off 😂. I miss the 90's so much.

WOW that's awesome!! Yeah you should have kept it. You probably was one of the few that got the optima card that looked that way. It's probably rare.
